Great gun, shoots just over 400 fps, I recomend using .25g bb's for accuracy. V-tac barrel system is looks clean. Only problem is that they use the cqb length systema barrel which is about 4 inches short of the v-tac outer barrel length. I gave it 4 stars because I got a defective gearbox were gear teeth broke and the piston teeth got chewed up after around my 4th time shooting the gun all of which was not covered by warranty meaning I had to pay for all the replacements. But I know a few people who have the GR16 base and have had no problems at all.
does anyone know what kind of stock and battery this will take? the stock it comes with is too small for my bigger battery, so, i bought a battery that would fit this stock. however, this battery was patheticly un-powerful. will this battery fit this gun: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?cPath=30_141&p- roducts_id=923
Wow. This gun is VERY smooth. Everything on it is amazing. It definatly does make a "smack" sound when you shoot it. And the free floating systyem is perfict. I attached a tactical flashlight to the right side of mine. And I took off the rail system off of the front part to give it a different look. The flash tip thing (i totally blanked out on what its called) doesnt screw on mine the way it looks in the picture though. The two square holes that are shown are facing up and down instead of side to side. Oh well though, the gun still looks amazing with the red dot scope I added. Overall great buy!
p.s. only certain crane stocks fit in this gun. I bought one and I'm sending it back because its too fat. Good thing Airsoft GI has great customer service....they are sending me the right one that fits. So basically what im trying to say is call to order this gun. And make sure your getting the correct battery.
This gun is freakin unreal. i just got it yesterday and its feels sounds and shoots perfectly. most guns, even some of the better guns give off sort of a whump sound when fire but this thing gives off a loud and satisfying snap and the bb leaves the barrel. i have an old crane stock battery that i was using and that hadn't been charged in over two months and this gu was still putting clean holes through hard thick plastic and soared through about 2 to 3 inches of comprssed styrafoam. everything is metal except 4 the pistol grip, the stock, and the vertical forward grip that mine came with. all of these are made with extremely hard and durable plastic. i have yet to test this thing with a fully charged battery or at a rang of more than ten meters but when i do i will write another review. P.S. if any one knows what kind of battery this takes it would be great to know.( the crane stock is slightly smaller than my other one so i need to know what kind it takes.
